Also provided as part of the cultural services events programme are temporary exhibitions exploring specific local stories and a History Resource Area that contains information useful for genealogical research. The Visitor Information Centre is also located within the building.

The area of Ballymoney is renowned for its rich and colourful history. Fertile land has attracted people to this region since the early Stone Age and through the centuries Celts, Vikings, Normans, Scots and English have all claimed land and settled here.
